3 links of Hillshire Farms Polish Kielbasa

Brown 3 links of Hillshire Farms Polish Kielbasa- cut into bite size pieces- put in a deep dish pan (I use my broiler pan)-add one jar of apple jelly, one bottle Kraft honey barbeque sauce- cover tightly with foil and bake one hour in a 350¼ oven (don't peek). We take it to parties in our crock pot but it doesn't last long- better if eaten the next day.
